  SCENARIO: Climate change impacts on UK apple production and quality
  Prof R Ellis, Prof P Hadley, Dr M Ordidge, Mr T Biddlecombe
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Future food and nutritional security requires sustainable food production systems in future, different climates. Perennial crops such as top fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries, etc) are more sustainable than annual crops.
  Physiology and biochemistry of the softening mechanism in ripening fruits: fundamental and commercial approaches
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Prof S C Fry, Prof D Uhrin
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Rationale. This project comprises novel research that is of both fundamental and industrial interest. The softening of ripening fruit involves dramatic changes in cell-wall structure.
  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round
Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  Glial cells in nervous system development and regeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
Looking for keen PhD students to search for the molecular mechanisms underlying glial function in repair and regeneration in the nervous system using the fruit-fly Drosophila as a model organism.
  Tryptophan metabolism and fruit fly behaviour: implications for psychosis
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou, Mr C Breda
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degrades contains several neuroactive metabolites which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of psychotic and neurodegenerative disorders.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Structural Brain Plasticity in Health, Regeneration and Repair
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.
  Domestication of Perennial Plants: Evolution and Dispersal
  Dr R Spengler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Some of the most heavily investigated research topics in the sciences relate to the origins of agriculture. Over the past century and a half, scholars from across several fields of scholarship have dedicated their careers to the questions of when, where, how, and why plants and animals were first domesticated.
  Bowel and Cancer Research funded PhD studentship: A Novel Genetic System to Study Tumour Heterogeneity and Clonal Competition in Gastrointestinal Tract Cancers
  Research Group: Barts Cancer Institute
  Dr P Ribeiro, Dr S McDonald
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
A graduate with an interest in biology, genetics and their application for the study of the basic mechanisms of cancer, with or is expecting at least an upper second class honours degree in Biology, Genetics or a revelant subject area, is required for this project aimed at developing a novel genetic system to study tumour heterogeneity and clonal competition in gastrointestinal cancers.
  Cancer Research UK funded PhD studentship: Defining the Rules of Cellular Darwinism
  Research Group: Barts Cancer Institute
  Dr P Ribeiro, Dr P R Cutillas
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
We are now accepting applications for a Cancer Research UK funded PhD studentship to start in September 2019. Barts Cancer Institute has an international reputation for cancer research, with world renowned experts in the field.
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round
Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
